In response to DaCeltics' comment:
We traded Perk when we were above .500
Seriously, Da, Westbrook and Parker are the 2nd best players on their respective teams. You really think those teams would want to mess up their team when they're in the top 3 of the west?
Some here don't even consider Rondo a better PG than Westbrook or Parker.
Come on, man, it's not realistic, it's far-fetched!
Our record would be a lot better right now with Parker or Westbrook. Not because they are a lot better players, because they would give us a threat to score.
example; RR passes the ball to PP, nothing happening, Rondo is open, shot clock winding down, is he going to shoot? Doubtful, he will dribble a couple more times and pass the ball leaving someone else to force a shot. Parker and Westbrook are both better at finishing near the hoop, and both have very good pull up jumpers, both shoot 3 pt shots and can make them.
Again, I like Rondo, but just being realistic. I have no doubts our record would be better with those guys.
